Originally: Great African Research Project
A project undertaken in a particular online game, aimed at improving game-performance, the Great African Research Project started by Wollongong was soon abbreviated to garp. This word soon became a common word, with many uses. It could be used instead of n00b, to express surprise, or in any instance where the speaker does not really know what to say.
1: Man, you are such a garp.
A: So how much did you pay for that thing?
B: $ 2599,99
